Cool Racerback Tank …by Lulu Lemon

I love the Cool Racerback tank ..LOVE IT! Over a year ago I started working with a trainer at my gym, and he would have me doing mountain climbers and other floor moves where my t-shirt would ride up. I felt very exposed and self conscious because my giggly bits are hanging out for all to see.  I went to Lulu Lemon and asked the girl if she had any suggestion as what I can do to keep my shirt in place. Her suggestion was the racerback tank top. It cost $39.00 and worth every penny.
I wear mine under my favourite Lulu Lemon T-shirt and I never have to worry about my giggle bits getting free. I love it because it fits perfectly, is long and stays put. I have about 4 of them now and recently after a year of use and washing I had to throw one out because the bottom was getting warped and not fitting as nicely as it use to.  It took over a year for my tank to show signs of distress, so that $39 dollar investment more than paid itself.
Whether you are into yoga, boxing, weight training etc. this tank will stay put!

The Miraclesuit

It’s almost bathing suit season so I think I should tell you gals how awesome my Miraclesuit bathing suit is. Last year I had ordered the Escape Miraclesuit:
Perfectly sculpted to draw the eye upward, narrowing the waist and accentuating the bust. The Escape features an underwire/foam bra, which together with a plunging neckline with unique cutout, maximizes the bust. Side shirring creates waistline definition.
I’ll be honest when it first got delivered to me I thought it looked awful and I ended up putting the suit back in the box and hiding it in my closet.In February I took it with me to Costa Rica because I needed another suit for that vacation and figured since I spend $150.00 on it I may as well use it. I loved it! I got so many complements! I still look the same as the first time I tired it on but I was in a better mind set. It was so faltering, sexy and I felt good in it (the compliments helped with that). I ordered my suit online at it took about two weeks to get delivered to me in Toronto. I also found out that specialty shops carry these suits as well.  If you are going to order online the measurements are accurate and reading the reviews about the suits also helps ensure that you get a good fit. For my suit I went a size up, and it fit perfectly as it turns out if you have a longer torso you will need a size bigger than you normally take. The material is great it can withstand a week of surfing, my other suit that I alternated with, frayed a bit after a couple of surfing sessions. If you are going to be lounging around the beach and frolicking in the ocean this suit will last forever.

Melmira Bra & Swimsuits

Last month I went to Costa Rica on vacation, and I needed a new bathing suit. I am sure I am like most women in that I hate bathing suit shopping! I rather go to the dentist that is how much I despise the whole progress. I’m 5’ 9” in average shape and I hate bathing suits. I can never figure out why, when standing around in my underwear and bra I look fine (well I can live with it! Ha I guess I have no choice) but put on a bathing suit and lumps and things just seem to appear.  Then you swear you are going to starve yourself until you leave for vacation, go into a depressive state, and possible break out in hives (yes bathing suit shopping is that stressful for me).
Not wanting to go to Bikini Village again, I googled other swimsuit places in Toronto and stumbled across Melmira Bra & Swinsuits. This is not just another run of the mill Swimsuit shop here they actually fit you to your bathing suit.  I went there on a whim and usually you need to make an appointment but fortunately they were able to fit me in that day. I go upstairs which is their swimsuit area, they take me to a fitting room and then a stylist came to talk to me about what I am looking for. I wanted a one piece that was sporty but girlie, for surfing. She asked me to lift up my shirt, I assumed to get a better idea of how big the belly was, but she wanted to see my torso. She said you have a long Torso so we need to work with that, than she was off. She came back with 3 suits to start with, the first one looked great No lumps, No camel toe is this possible?! The second was not so good and my stylist said “take that off that’s awful!” This was not said in mean way it was the truth and we both knew it. The third one was PERFECT, sporty, girlie and OH SO flattering I actually felt comfortable in a bathing suit.
This was my first swimsuit purchase that did not cause me stress, insecurities or hives. My stylist was wonderful; she knew exactly what would work for my body type. I highly recommend this to you girls out there; the gals at Melmira know what they are doing. My stylist knew that because I was tall I need to go a size bigger than I normally would get, and she was right everything she picked fit nicely. I think the biggest problem we make is picking up the wrong size, or the wrong suit design for our body types which makes us discouraged, frustrated and just want to hide.
If you don’t live in the Toronto area I am sure there are other shops that provide the same service, try one next time you need a new swimsuit you’ll be VERY happy that you did, I know I was. I’m going to go back soon and get fitted for some new Bras. FUN!

La Senza’s Double Push Up Bra…

 This is Le Senza’s first ever Double Push-Up Bra; it claims to make you up to two cup sizes bigger. It is made with lightweight foam padding, which pushes the girls out and up, so much so that your breasts get to your destination 5 minutes ahead of you. It comes with adjustable straps so that it can be worn classic, crossed or halter style. Also since there is so much padding you never have to worry about the dreaded nipple hard ons!
Does it actually make you two cup sizes bigger? It sure does, you will definitely feel large and in charge. I could not wear this bra everyday because every once in a while I would look down and all I’d see was cleavage it was very distracting. It would make a great bra to wear for a night out on the town because if there is no table you can just rest your beer on the girls!! Also for those of you worried about false advertising, relax if you do happen to be in the situation of unveiling the Ta Ta’s, do it last and quickly shove them in your man’s face he’ll be so distracted that he’ll never know you dropped two cup sizes!
The Double Push Up retails for $42.50 CDN, which makes it a cheaper alternative to the Victoria Secrets Very Sexy Push Up which retails for $49.60 – $54.00 USD.
So if you’re a  A – B cup and want to be a C-D cup defiantly try it, its fun. If you’re a C – D cup that’s just showing off!
If you have tried this bra please let us know what you think of it!
